Veni, vidi, vici.
Yup, same old LeBron James.
He came to Chicago, he saw a city he liked, as he would concede afterward to reporters, and he conquered a Bulls team once again without Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Luol Deng, though this time by a more pedestrian 92-85.
Hail, LeBron, which a sellout crowd of Bulls fans mostly did …

I remember one time asking the late Cotton Fitzsimmons, the garrulous and popular longtime coach of the Suns, Hawks, Spurs and Kings, what he’d do when one of his teams had one of those nights like the Bulls did Saturday in losing 100-90 to the Indiana Pacers.
When from the opening tip they had virtually no chance of winning the …

Now that Derrick Rose is an All-Star one question is whether it will hurt the Bulls the rest of the season.
Not that everyone among the Bulls and their fans isn’t thrilled and happy for Rose. But it suddenly becomes a long weekend toward the end of a long season and just before the traditional playoff strerch run.
And for …

It turns out that may have been the problem all season for the Bulls with the questions about Vinny Del Negro’s coaching status, Tyrus Thomas’ commitment, John Salmons’ position, Luol’s Deng’s role, the playing rotation, minutes, offense and depth.
The Bulls just needed to make shots.
Why didn’t someone think of that?
And, oh did they make them Monday in …

That was historic stuff Monday night at the United Center, the kind of stuff only long suffering Chicago fans can understand. Like the ’69 or ’05 Cubs. Like No. 1 DePaul in the NCAA’s. Don’t get anyone started on the Bears. The Black Sox?
No, the Bulls didn’t throw Monday’s 102-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings, though you could make …

No question. No doubt. That 101-98 Bulls overtime victory Saturday over the Atlanta Hawks was the best win of the season. Better than over an aging Spurs team on a back to back to open the season, better than even that road victory over the Cavaliers trying to figure out what to do with Shaquille O’Neal and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

The last time I remember the Bulls losing like this at home–110-78 to Toronto in a game that wasn’t that close–was also on a Saturday night, just about two years ago when the Houston Rockets dominated an indifferent Bulls team. Two days later coach Scott Skiles was fired.
I don’t expect Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro to be fired, especially …

Derrick Rose didn’t play Friday in the Bulls final preseason game against the Washington Wizards.
He could have played, he said, and he wanted to play, but he also understood not playing, but he’s sure he’ll play next Thursday when the Bulls open the season against the San Antonio Spurs because he’ll be practicing hard before then, though he agreed …

People always ask me what Michael Jordan really is like. Having been around him his entire playing career and, especially early in his career on several social occasions, I’m supposed to know. But I never could quite explain it exactly. I’d offer some stuff about being a man’s man and, basically, a good guy, a tough guy at times, but …

LAS VEGAS — Everyone knows this is a heck of a place for partying, so what better place to celebrate a milestone, like your 50th birthday. That’s what John Ligmanowski did Wednesday.
So as the blazing sun settled into the desert and Sin City lit up, Ligs, as they call him around the Bulls, hit his favorite spot.
